Not resolved

A young women came to my door and claimed that my town had signed a special deal with Com Ed my electric provider. She was wearing a Direct Energy shirt and told me Direct Energy supplies the power for Com Ed, which is a LIE.

She then told me I 'had' to bring a copy of both my electric bill and natural gas bill to 'confirm' my rates. I used to work with our Fraud Department and can sense a scam when it happens. I declined to provide any bills and she said she would be my agent and would be back. I also checked with my town and there is no special deal with Direct Energy.

I also called Com Ed and they said the same thing.

My advice to Direct Energy is; if your want to sign up new suckers...I mean customers DO NOT LIE. I don't do business with misleading scammers.

Reason of review: Misleading sales tactics.

Yep, these Direct Energy door to door guys are a scam. They want to see your bills, get your personal info, etc. Don't give anything to them and turn them away.


Good catch.

Would you like this information from anyone that has experienced this same scam? I just had it happen to me yesterday!


She was nothing more than a 1099 contractor, working on 100% commission. They are desperate for sales because they don't make an hourly wage.

You were correct in turning her away. If she or someone else comes back, ask for their solicitor's permit.

They won't have one. You can call the police and have them ran off.
